There are plenty of easy things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to ensure it’s functioning correctly. Simply turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dust within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
